Last night, overnight, I noticed that my car horn was chirping like I was pressing my button on the keyfob to set the alarm. What do I need to look at to fix this? The keyfob is only a few months old. I've tried the search but apparently I'm not wording it right to find what info I need. The battery in my car is pretty new to, replaced earlier this year. Stumped. Keyfob was in another room so no one was messing with it.

By default I think the horn only chirps when the door lock button on the key fob or the outside button on the doors is depressed. If you take the battery out of the ky fob(s) and it still does it then it most likely might be an issue with the door switch or keyless entry module on the car. If the chirping is bothering you it can be disabled, temporarily until you can get the car fixed, in the system settings through the headunit...uncheck the "horn on lock" option.

Hi Purple People Eater,

We certainly understand why this would be concerning. If you’re unable to determine a solution based on the suggestions provided here, we kindly recommend connecting with your local Dodge dealer as they are in the best position to assist. Our team is just a PM away if you are in need of any assistance with that process.

Can't you just post some troubleshooting items here? What's the point in tell him that he can contact you via PM? What's the point in reminding us that we can call FCA? We already know we can do that.

Dude, take it easy....DodgeCares posts are from actual people. In fact, when the whole "bricked" sport mode happened they eventually provided me with the TSB for the firmware that was supposed to fix the problem. Granted it was after I got the firmware from a Canadian member but I wanted confirmation as to what the firmware fixed. As for giving diagnostic steps it probably would not help as most checks require a dealer scan tool...especially when it involves wireless entry issues.

Fair. It just seems like the posts are pointless that's all. I'm glad to hear they do in fact provide assistance at times.

Hi acidfingertips,

As our team is not mechanically trained, we are unable to speculate regarding vehicle concerns. With this in mind we rely on our dealers to be our eyes and ears in the field.

While we are unable to speculate regarding concerns, we are able to open and escalate cases on behalf of our customers for further assistance. Escalating a case allows us to connect customers with our team of case specialists who are able to work alongside our dealers to find potential solutions to vehicle concerns. Case escalation also allows us to formally document customer concerns within our internal systems. As we do require personal information to proceed with escalation, we handle this process via private message to protect the privacy of our customers.
